    Traps and pitfalls in Solaris Zones


      What are the traps and pitfalls in using Solaris zones?


      Specifically, what tools, utilities, system calls don't work or work differently in a non-global zone?


      I'm new to zones and I've already encountered one difference which is very significant to me:

      orphan processes have PPID of 1 in global zone, while in non-global zone, it's the pid of zsched process.


      This by itself will prevent one of my systems to be converted into a zone.

      I'm wondering what other differences are there.


      Is there a document or web site that lists such issues?


      Thanks for your help.
